Yeah, right. The only place they are going is to early tee times while other teams are preparing for their playoff games.

Remember the Titans. As a former NYer, I was a fan back in the early days, and especially during Broadway Joe's era.

Well, Cowboy's Doug Free out for 4-6 weeks with a foot fracture and Joseph Randle was just arrested for shop lifting. Hope this type of trend does not continue.

From what I've read, he'll earn more than 1/2 million this year on his contract. The news report I was reading said, his excuse was, he didn't want to take the time to pay for the items. What is someone like this thinking? If this is all true, he's lucky that stupidity isn't a crime?

I understand the Cowboys recently implemented a zero tolerance policy for arrests and other misconducts. I am curious to see how that policy gets interpreted in this case. If Murray gets hurt or needs rest, they will certainly need Joseph Randle.

It will be interesting to see how they apply their new zero tolerance policy. Also, I realize that the NFL want's to be seen as "swiftly" taking appropriate and positive actions in these cases. But shouldn't the discipline be held until the person is found guilty in a court of law or admits to the crime/misconduct?

My first thought when I read this story is why would someone who obviously has a decent paycheck, even if paid the minimum pro football salary do such a stupid thing? I guess the thoughts of "I want, I take" overpower "I'll get caught" at the moment.

Kinda brings back memories of Winona Ryder and her kleptomaniac days

Hopefully he won't be joining us on one of the threads about realizing we weren't as critical to our jobs as we thought we were.

I think Garrett said he would be fined one weeks pay. I'm not sure what exactly that translates to, but probably at least $20K.

Wow, Dallas won again today. Maybe not as impressive as last weeks win but still a good showing. They have the best record in the NFL (6 and 1) at this point. Who would have guessed.

The bad Bears are back. Lose badly and yell and scream at each other in the locker room after the game. And chastise the fans for booing them on the field.

The only thing missing is a QB controversy. All they have is Bad Jay/Good Jay

Here we go again. I'm starting to go on the Peyton Manning bandwagon again. The Broncos looked dominant against the 49ers.

Agree, they were awesome. They even took Peyton out in the forth quarter since they were so far ahead. (Bet he didn't like being taken out)

I did get a good laugh when his teammates wouldn't let Peyton have the record breaking football by playing keep-away with it. They looked like a bunch of kids playing around (Really big kids) I'm not sure why he wanted it so badly since I understand it's going into the hall of fame anyway.

I don't follow the NFL as closely as some, but it's obvious that, so far this season, the old adage "that's why they play the games" applies.

Yeah. Saw the part of his teammates playing keep away. I hope Peyton at last had a chance to hold the historic ball again before the NFL HOF guy hauled it away.

"A Tale of Two Cities" with Texas teams this week - It was the best of times (for Dallas), it was the worse of times (for Houston)...

Actually, the Houston/Pittsburgh game wasn't that bad (if you didn't watch the last few minutes of the second quarter.) I understand it's not a record, but I've personally never seen so many points scored by one pro team in such a short time.

The game will become 100% better when the league gets rid of facemasks.
